Question about Samsung Digimax S630 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Some JPEGs won't display on PC

My daughter has taken a lot of pictures, they are stored on a Sandisk 1.0Gb SD card.
However when we connect the card to a PC using a USB multi card reader some of the pictures won't display..
To be specific -
There are currently a total of 96 files on the drive. (There are a handful of AVI video clips too).
When listed in chronological order, the first 73 are ok. The next 22 can't be processed. The last one is ok again.
I've just noticed that doing a DIR command, the last file is listed amongst the first 73.. ie as they are listed directly from the FAT index (apologies if not using the right terms here..) we actually get the first 74 files ok then the remainder apparently corrupt or whatever..
This happens on various PCs - all Win XP.
Anyone seen anything like this?

From indications based on your post/description, it would appear that some portion of the Sandisk 1.0Gb SD card may be problematic. Problems like these are often due to the card being nearly full or partial error in the recording media.

It would be best to format the said card using your PC and then use a disk utility such as "Scandisk" or Norton's "Disk Doctor" to check for errors before using again.

There are other programs that formats USB flash drives and memorycards; two are HP Drive Key Boot Utility, Partition Magic.

Since this of course would delete all files stored, you must copy all that can be copied. If you would want to try and retrieve the missing images, you need to use a file recovery program such as GetDataBack or do a Google for freeware versions.

After formatting the card and checking for errors, it would be best to re-format it again this time using the camera itself.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information./

Good luck and kind regards.

How can i transfer pictures from acer iconia to memory card

This Tablet Personal Computer [PC] takes Micro Secure Digital [SD] Cards. To transfer pictures from a Digital Camera to this PC, if the Camera also takes Micro SD cards, is simply a matter of removing the Micro SD card from the Camera and installing it in the PC's Micro SD Card Slot and then waiting for the PC's AutoPlay function to serve up the photo files stored on the card, which can then be Dragged and Dropped into a photo folder on the PC.

If the Camera takes SD Cards, then a Micro SD to SD Card Adapter is required so that the PC's Micro SD Card can fit in the camera before pictures are taken and then disconnected from the adapter afterwards, for re-insertion in the PC.

If the Camera takes a different type of Memory Card, then a Multi Card Reader might be required, which would be connected to the computer's USB Port and the Memory Card slotted into its matching slot in the Card Reader.

The card appears to be defective. Replace the card.

There is a small chance if some crud on the contacts, but sounds like you have removed and inserted a few times.

Return it to where you bought it.. for exchange or refund.
You could try to format the card in a PC, but even that sounds unlikely by your description.
If you can see the card in the PC there is SoftWare that can try to recover defective pics from card.
But if you can not "see" the card in a PC, the SW is a waste of time.

My computer will not pull up pictures off my 2gb sandisk sd card.

Hi! Maybe what you're talking about is the 'Autoplay' feature of the computer. Autoplay can be disabled at some times so you cannot see it, or Autoplay only displays a view picture 'icon' when there is/are picture/s on your 2gb sandisk sd card.

To manually view your pictures, you can follow this steps:
1. Head on to your computer by clicking Computer on the Start Menu.
2. From there you can see an sd card icon that displays your inserted 2gb sandisk sd card name.
3. Click that icon, then from there you can see and browse the files on your 2gb sandisk sd card, including your pictures.

Click Helpful if this fix your problem :) It would be a pleasure.

Hi there.
Yes you can put a few pictures on the SD card, you can transfer pictures back and forward while the camera is connected to the PC or you can transfer them via a card reader.

Write protected error using Sandisk card in Digital Concepts CR-75 Reader

Try a different reader if you can - laptops comes with an SD reader sometimes. Or take it to a computer store or possibly radio shack would have one open to test.

Or just replace the card - 1gb cards are $20 now.
